Concert - The Dreamers of Dreams - Sheringham & Cromer Choral Society
Sheringham and Cromer Choral directed by David Ballard present two reflective works by the most successful British composers at opposite ends of the twentieth century, both for soprano and chorus. Edward Elgar's The Music Makers is an ode to those who create music. With words by Arthur O’Shaughnessy the opening lines set the scene “We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams”. John Rutter's Requiem has the sort of memorable melodies that are readily associated with his work whilst also being able to explore profound musical depths. It is dedicated to his father who had recently died when he completed composing the work in 1985. He combines the traditional Latin text with bible verses in English – notably Psalm 23 “The Lord is My Shepherd” and Psalm 130 “Out of the Deep”.
With soprano Zaira Palumbo accompanied by Philip Adams (piano/organ) and a small chamber ensemble.
